Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 23: Verses 34-43
One of those ladies, who was (forcibly) held back by her husband, mentally embraced the Lord even as she had heard of Him, and cast off the body, that had been brought about as a result of her (past) actions. Having fed the cowherd boys with the same food of four kinds, Lord Sri Krsna (the Protector of cows) too, though all powerful Himself, partook of it (in the end). Thus imitating the ways of men and delighting the cows and cowherds as well as the cowherdesses by His personal charm, speech and doings, Lord Sri Krsna (who had assumed a human semblance for the sake of sport) carried on His pastimes (in Vraja). Presently the aforesaid Brahmanas were filled with remorse to realize (through the fellowship of their pious and devoted wives) that they had committed an offence in that they turned down the solicitation of Balarama and Sri Krsna (the Rulers of the universe), who were behaving as men. Perceiving the transcendent devotion of their womenfolk to Lord Sri Krsna and full of regret to find themselves devoid of it, they severely condemned themselves (as follow):- "Fie upon our threefold birth (in the shape of our being born of Brahmana parents, investiture with the sacred thread and consecration for the sacrifice in which we are engaged) and learning (mastery of the Vedas); fie upon our sacred vow (of continence for the period of the sacrifice); fie upon our versatile knowledge; fie upon our pedigree and fie upon our proficiency in rituals when we have actually turned our face away from Lord Sri Krsna (who is above sense-perception).
